This project will enhance our existing park systems by supplementing existing playground equipment at both Morningside and Landa Parks with the addition of equipment that will make the parks more welcoming and inclusive for visitors of all abilities. In addition to the funds that were allocated to this project through the 2019 Bond Program the City will also receive a grant that will provide a one to one match of city funds doubling the funds available for this project.
